Our White House lesson plan introduces students to the White House in Washington, D.C., home of nearly all of the U.S. presidents. Many people visit the White House, but most students will not have the opportunity to see it in person. The lesson gives students interesting information and amazing facts about the White House. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and work with a partner to create invitations to various events taking place in different rooms of the White House, helping them differentiate between them. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe various parts of the White House and their significance, list interesting facts about the White House, and summarize its history.
